Who Enforces the OSHA Regulations in New Jersey?
Workplace safety and health for most private sector employers, including OSHA training New Jersey, is regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). New Jersey operates a public sector only occupational safety and health program (PEOSH) under a plan approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.
The Public Employees Occupational Safety and Health (PEOSH) Program has the responsibility to develop and enforce occupational health standards for public employees throughout the state, and to encourage employers and employees in their efforts to improve their working environment.
OSHA Regulations and Standards in New Jersey:
Federally regulated employers located in New Jersey are governed by the federal OSHA health and safety standards found in the 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These include, but are not limited to, the OSHA general industry standards in 29CFR1910, maritime standards in 29CFR Parts 1915, 1917 and 1918, construction standards in 29CFR1926, and agricultural standards in 29CFR1928. Therefore, regulated companies needing OSHA training in New Jersey need to comply with the OSHA regulations.
New Jersey OSHA State Laws for the Construction Industry:
OSHA 10 hour Outreach Training course is not required by law in New Jersey, however; the training is already a common requirement on large commercial projects (public and private). Due to the prevalence of union construction setting a "baseline" and imposing a minimum standard to which smaller, non-union contractors who wish to undertake public work must now adhere, the OSHA 10 has become an industry mandate without a law behind it.
Already required by five states in the Northeast, the OSHA 10 Hour Course has become an "industry standard" for both the public and private sector projects. Many contractors in New Jersey also encourage supervisors to take the OSHA 30-hour course in order to better manage their 10-hour-trained workforces.
